      Nope, upgrade to Nivomats, they are awesome! You need to extend them for your lifted setup, but I've figured out how to do that and even got the parts (stud + hex nut).

      I have a question regarding your spring spacers: do they allow spring to slip? I want to do a mild lift (20 mm spacers), there's a ready to install kit on ebay, but I somewhat fear they will allow rear springs to slip while I'm in the middle of nowhere.

      I havenít had any issues with that yet. These have been in there for like 10k miles so far I think and thatís what they look like right now. I was skeptical of that too at first but everything seems to work pretty well

      Iím also thinking of a 20mm lift kit, but Iím afraid it will force the geometry to positive camber. Does it do this, and is there any cure to the positive camber?

      Iíve got like 4Ē ish total lift and it still aligns fine. 2Ē springs and 2Ē spacers and .5Ē subframe spacers, so at 20mm you should have no issues with alignment

      I'm going to add 16 mm subframe spacers to keep Nivomats happy.

      I welded some ears on either side of my upper spring housings to keep the springs from slipping. Maybe not necessary, but the car was offload only

      I kinda kicked that location around when I was installing mine too. Just out of curiosity, if youíre going up there, why didnít you center it? And does the brake light interfere with your view when itís illuminated?

      Mostly because I wanted the view of my spare swing out on the back and this gives the best vantage of where it ends for like parallel Parking and stuff. I also pull a trailer occasionally and this lets me see the hitch. And no the brake light doesnít effect it, but my backup light bar kinda gives some distortion at night hAha

      So I got this skinny roof box today and was thinking of putting a rhino rack basket next to it, but I can't find a "skinny" basket for the life of me, you got a PN on that thing? Or anything similar?

      Same with the awning. Also, how's that sit on there?

      Heck ya I canít find a part number for it either. Itís a lot harder to find now than when I got it for some reason. But I did find it on amazon



      The awning is a Yakima slim shady. But mounting wise, thereís 2 tracks on the back of any awning for bolts to sit in and instead of using the stock mounting that takes up valuable rack space I just made 2 long L brackets. The short Ďlegí of the bracket bolts to the 2 tracks on the awning, and the long side goes straight under the box and the box is fastened on top and secured the bracket in place Iíll get a couple pics in a minute

      Makes sense, with the thule box (idk about yakima) they are locked with bracket holders from the inside, and I even have extra holes to mount stuff into from the bottom. that's great info man.

      For sure. Looks about the same as I could do, like the box was made for it

      Now I just need an extra set of roof rails to hold my wind fairing at the front and the back of the box for extra weight capacity

      I've found a couple of awnings on ebay already, they can't any of them be that different from the slim shady one huh? Any Yakima "slim shady" i look for ends up with results from the eminem album.

      Hahaha of course. Iím not sure why they chose that name. But ya I wouldnít think there wouldnít be a whole lot of difference really. Looks like one word maybe is the key

      Hot damn are these systems expensive new. You'd be surprised what you find for the cheap on marketplace or craigslist. Got a 7'x2' box today for 100 thule that locks from marketplace, my crossbars oem volvo for 40 from craigslist, and 50 for the 44" thule fairing also from CG.

      I'll be on the lookout for stuff like this used, thanks a ton brother!

      I think Rhino Rack recently quit making these -- over a week or two I had settled on the 'small' basket, but when I tried to order the webpage returned '404'. I quickly tried several other places, who were all out of stock, finally finding one in-stock at etrailer.com. I wanted a basket that would fit my spare, but also fit up top with the roof box. Both of them hang a bit over edge of car, but not too bad, and provide lots of storage. I have the volvo bars now, but may purchase longer thule bars. Good luck finding the rhino rack basket...

      Thanks for all of the help thus far. Got the lift done (kind of ), new wheels, tires, etc, but now getting a bunch of CV chatter and looking to replace the existing with the [email protected] XC90 axles. I haven't been able to find a comprehensive take on how best to do this. I have 25 mm spacers with the same wheel set up as you. Any advice on the XC90 axles? What else I need to change/modify along with it? Also, will be adding the sub-frame spacers. Thanks again for all of the help! John

      Ya the xc90 axles will help for sure. Just make sure theyíre the 2.5t AWD xc90 axles and nothing else. You might need spacers for the hubs to keep ABS in alignment. Some do and some donít. Itís a 1/4Ē thick, 1Ē ID and 2ĒOD spacer. I used a big washer from the hardware store and dremeled out one of the lips to fit the end of the xc90 axle and then a fully threaded axle bolt cut down a bit and thatís it for the swap

      Hey! They go on the hub end of the axle to make sure the ABS ring and sensor line up. You might have to do some dremeling or something to get it to fit flush on the end of the axle
